Its been busy week and I’m happy it was. So many task were completed and missions accomplished.
This past Sunday I found the dress of my dreams at David’s Bridal. I’m honestly impressed with David’s. I went in not expecting much – your white average prom looking wedding dress, something you can easily find at Macy’s or just about anywhere else for that matter. To my pleasantly surprise David’s Bridals offers a dynamic range of quality and style. They carry stunning gowns from amazingly affordable to moderately priced. Vera Wang dropped her gorgeous WHITE Wedding Collection in February, and I must say that David’s Bridal has really brought their A-Game this season! I’m thrilled about finding my dress of course, but the experience is even more precious in my mind because my grandmother was able to participate in the experience. Her face lit up like a tree on Christmas when we found the dress …. those memories are the ones that make the “Getting Married” experience all the more Priceless. Oh, and Thursday, I found the Maid of Honor’s dress!! My sister will look fab, and she’s very happy with it too! That’s two for two with David’s! No, I didn’t take pictures — No photos untill the wedding day because its a secret! Yes. I’m cheesy like that.
On another note … I’ve joined Weigh Watchers this week! I told you I was going to get things moving! I’ve already seen drastic changes in only 7 days. Yay!! I have to say, I was skeptical about the whole program at first, but after one week on it, you really can’t go wrong. Let me put it this way — on Wednesday, we had lots of rice, mashed potatoes, noodles and birthday cake (umm, 3 slices for me) for Aloysius’ Mother (can you say carb loading?) and I still lost. Not like just one pound, but I lost five and wasn’t able to get to the gym at all this week. It kinda makes you realize how terrible you’re eating when you’re not paying attention. Moving in with Aloysius this summer and getting all cozy at home did not make for a slim waist this winter. But the truth of the matter is, I knew I could turn it around when I was good a ready. WW is not a drastic program by any means. You really can eat what you want – I eat a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich every night as a treat and I’m still losing folks. As long as you stay accountable and true to yourself, you will see the results and won’t feel deprived.
The Justin and Mary “Spread the Love” workshop I attended this Tuesday was Fantastical – not a real word, I know. Justin and Mary have such a passion for photography, people and an intense passion for love. Their energy is contagious and insanely inspirational. I’m fired up and ready to go with new ideas and a fresh way of thinking about things. They reccomended a few more books to read, and I’ll be assisting on an Engagement shoot this weekend for a couple whose wedding I’ll be second shooting next Saturday.
This week was great, but I know there’s still so much to do this year!
